Parcells and Cameron meet, nothing decided
Cam Cameron arrived around three hours later.
The two met around noonish and when all was said and done ... nothing was decided.
As I have been reporting, Cameron's fate will likely not be decided until after Parcells hires a new general manager. That might happen as early as Wednesday. And the decision on Cameron would likely soon follow.
Parcells was scheduled to dine with with Dallas personnel man Jeff Ireland this evening. I do not know for sure, but I am assuming the Big Tuna will ask Ireland about Tony Sparano and their relationship while both were at Dallas.
Mr. Tuna wants his general manager and coach to be compatible so it's important that Ireland give Sparano the thumbs up. That would work against Cameron because Cameron and Ireland don't have a history together best I can tell.
What is working on Cameron's behalf? Two things: Parcells respects Bobby Knight's opinion and Knight has given Cameron an endorsement. Also, Parcells, a former coach, understands that a coach's record is not always the best indicator of his ability and is aware Cameron's 2007 Dolphins suffered a bunch of injuries.
Anyway, I'll be back at work Wednesday when things are likely to happen.
